Lovely & Lace

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you have a “fab”ulous weekend!  Thanks so much for the comments and for sharing my blog!  Please … feel free to share with all your friends, that is what stamping is all about, a collection of fun, creative minds.

On January 29th, I introduced that stamp set “You’re Lovely”, from the Sale-a-bration catalog and said that it coordinates with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits (and that I would be ordering them).  Well … they have arrived and I got a chance to use them this weekend.  I don’t know how I got along without them – they work nicely with our circle punches too!

I used the same stamp as I did in January, but will be sure to make more for you with the others.  I then cut it out with the Deco Labels Framelit and also cut a mat from Basic Black.

I wanted the pretty flowers to pop, so I used the Real Red ink pad and a Blender Pen to color them in.  I went over the greenery with the “Wild Wasabi” Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I wanted to use some Designer Series Paper for my card and decided to use the “Modern Medley” … I think it suits this stamp nicely.

Next I wanted to add a touch of lace, but with the light background and the polka dots, it was a bit hard to see.  So, I decided to thread a pop of color in it.  There is a definite pattern in the lace ribbon so I used that for the spacing of the weave.

I used the needle from the “Heartfelt Banner Kit” – the end of the needle is not sharp but still goes through the lace.  Once you get the ribbon up to the lace, you just wiggle it through sideways.  It’s a bit tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it goes pretty good.  I also tied a bow (the fork bow) and attached it with Glue Dots.

To finish off my card, I felt I need something at the bottom … so I colored my Pearls with a Black Sharpie Marker (permanent marker) and added them to the bottom to balance out the card.  I also added 2 to the greeting to complete the look.  I love black pearls!  In fact, you can have whatever color you want … Sharpie makes a variety of colors.
